I can understand how you might be playing your guitar one day, then coming to the realization, “Hey! This thing just puts out electrical signal. I should be able to plug it right into my computer!’ Now your dreams can be a reality with Orange Amplifiers’ new OPC small form-factor desktop.
I’m not so sure mounting a large speaker right on your computer’s housing is a good idea, as amps can generally take a decent beating. But the hardware under the hood proves this isn’t just some piece of novelty gear.
These units will ship with recording and Orange amp simulation software included, allowing you to record and playback a whole myriad of sounds. Orange has a reputation for high quality sound, and I don’t expect any less here.
Expect the OPC to be released this June. No word on a price point quite yet.
